Smell of Camphor, Scent of Jasmine

UN FILM DE Bahman Farmanara

A cross between Bergman and Fellini.
- Michael Wilmington, CHICAGO TRIBUNE


Bahman Farjami, a fifty-five year old film director, has not made a film for the past twenty years. The death of other film directors of his generation like Sohrab Shahid Salles and Ali Hatami, and his own heart condition makes him feel that the Angel of Death must be around the corner. Out of desperation, he decides to make a film about his own funeral. His research into Iranian funeral rites and his life in modern Iranian society get tangled together and the process takes him through an emotional roller coaster that leads to his death. Maybe.
